Do I Need a Visa for Zimbabwe?
A visa is required for US citizens to travel to Zimbabwe. A passport, return ticket, and proof of sufficient funds to cover the trip are also required. Tourist visas are valid for either 30 days, permitting a single entry, or for 60 days, permitting multiple entries. It is possible to extend the validity of a visa in Zimbabwe, but this requires an in-person visit to the Zimbabwe Immigration Office in Harare. If you choose to extend your visa while in Zimbabwe, be sure to allow ample time for review of your visa extension application. Foreigners have been imprisoned in the past for overstaying the validity of their visas.

Can I Obtain My Visa for Zimbabwe on Arrival?
Yes. Zimbabwe now only offers visas for US citizens upon arrival, and, as of November of 2015, it is no longer possible to obtain the visa in advance via an Embassy or Consulate. Your visa will be taken care of at immigration when you arrive in the country.

Do I Need a Passport for Zimbabwe?
Yes. Make sure your US passport is still valid and will be for 6 months after the date you plan to exit the region. Especially if you are making multiple stops and going to South Africa on your trip, make sure your passport has at least three blanks pages for entry and exit stamps, as the South African government has been known to deny entry to travelers whose passports do not meet this requirement.
